Introduction

Doctoral programs at CEU are fully funded study programs with a standard duration of 4 years that award a US and an Austrian degree.

The PhD program does not have separate sociology and anthropology tracks—both disciplines are integrated. Students are encouraged to conduct empirical research using a wide variety of methodologies, however, theoretically informed approaches that embrace a broad intellectual agenda are prioritized. Of special interest are projects that promote: the integration of sociological and anthropological perspectives as well as methodologies; comparative approaches to urban processes; economic formations and transformations; research on social networks; generation of inequalities; meanings and practices of gender; transnational migration and dynamics of place-making; and social movements.

Sample Courses for the Doctoral Program

Transnational Migration; Comparative Thinking; Theory and Research in Contemporary Macro-sociology; Social Network Analysis; State, Power and Resistance; Economic Sociology; Independent Study Module.
